Why 17 photographs?[edit]

As of today (I haven't looked at the article previously) there are 16 photographs of Rubio adorning this article, in addition to his official Senate portrait. It looks more like an ad than an encyclopedia article. His high school yearbook picture? Really? Surely some of these could be removed, to improve the article.

Churchill
FDR
Well, this is a biography, and pictures are useful in biographies. When we've got 'em, why not use 'em? For example, these are used in Wikpedia's biographies of Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt.Anythingyouwant (talk) 04:36, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
Because it comes across as a political ad, that's why. It's unencyclopedic. Churchill and FDR are two of the most important persons of modern history. Who would say that of Rubio? It isn't a question of his politics, but his significance. Milkunderwood (talk) 05:15, 8 June 2016 (UTC)
If you would like to remove the high school pic, please do. I don't think you've mentioned any other particular pic that you don't like, but feel free to mention another one and maybe we can reach agreement about that too.Anythingyouwant (talk) 02:31, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
Never mind, I went ahead and removed it for you.Anythingyouwant (talk) 02:34, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

Rubio's position on Donald J Trump for President[edit]

I see that there's been a something of an edit war about this. My 2 cents: I agree with BringthePaine that Rubio's views on Trump do not belong in the intro. It's been front page news all across the continent, but... doesn't really warrant being in Sen. Rubio's intro. I do think that one's stance on Trump has become one of the most discussed positions a candidate can have in 2016 (and likely for some years hence). Many Republicans are torn between supporting and disowning him, as they weigh the risks of alienating voters/supporters whichever choice they make. One's stance on Trump, i.e., is perhaps more politically significant that, say, one's position on health care. Furthermore, it's all the more significant for those Republicans who, like Rubio, exchanged harsh criticism with Trump during what were perhaps the most personally heated Republican Presidential primaries ever. So I think it's imperative to keep a solid review of Mr. Rubio's changing positions on Trump. Having said that, I don't particularly like the way it's worded right now. The "reversed" overtone sets up the reader to judge Rubio as a hypocrite. I think the content and citations could remain, without leading the witness, as it were.--Smilo Don (talk) 16:48, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

I agree that is not lead worthy, but that it should be covered in the article. I don't really agree that "reversed" portrays Rubio as a hypocrite, but I have no objection to using more nuanced wording.- MrX 17:39, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
I reworked the section a bit. It was important to point out that the criticism mentioned in the article was made when Trump & Rubio were actively running against each other in a political campaign. The endorsement was made only after Trump became the nominee. And it didn't make sense to say that "Rubio didn't withdraw his endorsement" after Access Hollywood tapes--we have in the article that he endorsed him, so it's implicit that the endorsement remains active unless it is explicitly withdrawn, which it hasn't been. Champaign Supernova (talk) 19:08, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, Champaign Supernova. That section looks much better now. The only glitch I see is that it ends ambiguously, with Rubio's criticism of the groping scandal. That moment was the breaking point for so many Republicans; one that begs the question: "So does he still support Trump or not?" I think Rubio's continued endorsement of Trump belongs as the conclusion to that paragraph.Smilo Don (talk) 13:19, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
I disagree. Stating that he hasn't changed his stance on Trump sounds like the writer is trying to make a point.BringthePaine (talk) 15:47, 28 October 2016 (UTC)
